Itinerary

Day 1

Arrive Udaipur

Arrive in Udaipur and transfer to your hotel. Set on the shores of Lake Pichola and surrounded by hills, Udaipur grew in complete contrast to the harsh deserts of the rest of Rajasthan. As the capital of the old Mewar State, it was the only Rajput stronghold to uphold its Hindu allegiance in the face of Muslim invasion. This fairy–tale city, with its marble palaces and lakes surrounded by a ring of hills, was founded by Maharana Udai Singh in 1559. The city is dominated by the massive City Palace, which overlooks Lake Pichola with its romantic island palaces. Picturesque havelis, ghats, and temples line the lakefront, with the lively bazaars of the old walled city stretching behind them. Overnight at Hotel.
Day 2

Udaipur

After breakfast proceed for half day city tour of Udaipur by visiting the City Palace and Museum. The largest palace complex in India, it is a blend of Mughal and Rajput influences. See the 17th century Jagdish temple, drive around the Fatehsagar Lake, and visit the Sahelion ki Bari (the Garden for the Maids of Honour), an ornamental pleasure garden with fountains and marble kiosks. Later visit the Bharatiya Lok Kala Mandir or the Folk Art Museum. Later in the evening take a boat ride on the 4 km long and 3 km wide Lake Pichola, which is fringed with hills, palaces, Havelis, ghats, embankments, and temples and offers spectacular views of the city. Visit Jag Mandir Island with its exquisite Gul Mahal Pavilion. Overnight at Hotel.
Day 3

Udaipur - Jodhpur (300 Kms)

After breakfast drive to Jodhpur en-route visiting Ranakpur the largest Jain temple complex in India and dates to the 15th century. The main temple is dedicated to Adinath, the first Tirthankar. Intricate carvings detail mythological figures, patterns, and motifs on the walls, pillars, and domes. There are 1444 ornately carved marble pillars in the complex and none of them are similar. The beautiful lace-like interiors of the domes are a superb example of western Indian temple style. Later continue to drive to Jodhpur. Arrive at the Blue City Jodhpur and transfer to your hotel. An oasis in the arid Thar Desert, Jodhpur is the second-largest city in the state of Rajasthan. Representing this colourful city with shades of blue, Jodhpur has a history that is rich and a present that beckons strongly to the discerning tourist. Forts and palaces, temples and Havelis, culture and tradition, spices and fabrics, colour and texture, Jodhpur have them all and in plenty. Situated in Western Rajasthan, Jodhpur has long attracted both domestic and outside tourists. It not only offers tangibles, in terms of what you can see and buy but also fills one with a sense of history and the splendours of an era gone by. The hospitality of the locals, the demure women, and the colourful turbans -all set against the beloved desert (Marwar) is something to feel, not just see. Every pore of Jodhpur tells its own tales of heroic deeds that made legends out of kings and soldiers, romances that continue to warm the heart and a time when epics were lived out on the streets by the everyday man. Overnight at Hotel.
Day 4

Jodhpur - Jaisalmer (300 Kms)

After breakfast proceed for a city tour of Jodhpur visit the Meherangarh Fort, situated on a low sandstone hill.

Later drive to Jaisalmer and transfer to your hotel. Jaisalmer is a fairy-tale town in the Thar Desert founded about 800 years ago by Jaisal. Unlike any other city, this desert fortress is one of Rajasthan's most exotic and unusual towns. Jaisalmer, an important ancient trading center because of its strategic location on the camel trade routes, is often described as the 'golden city'. The annual desert festival takes place in January and February each year and is a riot of color and activity. Jaisalmer is also famous for its embroidery, Rajasthani mirror work, rugs, and blankets, antique, silver jewelry, and stonework, and camel safaris. Overnight at the hotel.
Day 5

Jaisalmer - Sodakore Mirvana Tents (55 Kms)

After breakfast leave for the city tour of Jaisalmer. Visit the famous Havelis (mansions) known for their frescoes. Jaisalmer's strategic position on the camel terrain route bought it great wealth. The merchants grew prosperous and commissioned great havelis, or mansions, to flaunt their ever-growing status in society. Made of local golden-yellow sandstone and wood, some of the Havelis are still in excellent condition. The most elaborate and magnificent of all the Jaisalmer Havelis is the Patwaon Ki Haveli. Five Jain brothers built the Haveli between 1800 and 1860. Salim Singh Ki Haveli and Nathmal Ki Haveli are the other two havelis that are opened to visitors. Built-in 1156 by the Bhatti ruler, Jaisal, the fort here stands atop the 80 m high Trikuta hill. 3 walls and features 99 bastions surround the fort. Over the centuries, the golden sandstone fortress witnessed many battles between the Bhatti Rajputs, the Mughals, and the Rathore’s of Jodhpur. Within the fort, complex lie the beautifully carved Jain Temples built between the 12th and 15th centuries. This house is priceless ancient manuscripts and other exhibits like astrological charts, besides the Jain equivalent of the Christian Shroud of Turin. In the evening, proceed for the excursion to Sam Sand dunes. Located at a distance of 42 kilometers from Jaisalmer, Sam Sand Dunes is the closest point to witness the total sandy desert.
